A stunning deep gold color, viscous and oily in the glass.
Nose has honeycomb, sliced almonds, baked pear, dried peach, oxidized yellow apple peel and dried citrus peel.
Palate has peach jam reduction, wildflower honey, candied orange, ripe apricot, over-ripe peach with a full, round mouthfeel. Mild acidity with pleasant sweetness.
Chenin Blanc oh how I love thee! This is in a great spot today, but would expect it to hold through 2025-31 at this stage, in proper storage. Decanted 4H, yet continuing to unfold. — 6 months ago
It is mind blowing how chenin Blanc has the potential to produce such long lasting fresh wines. Full bodied, apricot which is mouth filling and unctuous yet does not overpower you and stays fresh making you go for the next glass. Magnificent bottle from “den Eddy”. — 6 months ago
Vintage 2007 | My goodness. Chaume is such a privileged location. And happily... one that a lot of people do not know yet. Claude Papin is a top winegrower. Mahony colour. Deep mahony. A smell with figs and honey. Lavendel honey. Awesome balanced taste. A Chenin Blanc that belongs to the top of the world. | Paired with duck liver from Hofstede de Blaak — 7 months ago

Vintage 1997 | it is otherworldly how intens and beautiful Chenin Blanc can develop, probably with ethernal life 🤔 this wine has an old good Mahony colour, acaciahoney smell and awesome taste. Anjou, south of Angers, I think the appellation is now Coteaux de l’Aubance. Beautiful acidity to balance the sweet. Love this wine. — 4 months ago
Smells of ripe Chenin. Browned apple cores and melted cinnamon. A thick, big boy - round and the tiniest bit oily.
Tastes like baked red apples and orange pulp and lemon zest and a little bitter from jasmine tea.
Absurd for the value as is usually the case with these guys. — 7 months ago
